My wife and I (Mary & Brian F.)stayed for 6 days at the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa from 30th June to 5th July and must say that this is he friendliest hotel we have ever stayed in; we were treated like VIPs by all the staff. Our stay was the most comfortable, rooms spotless and the meals in the... More

The hotel seems quite good at first. But when you look closely, you quickly realise it is not as good as you thought! It is DIRTY: the tables in the bar are sticky, there are some breadcrumbs on the floor, the curtains in the room had holes in them, the lamp on the desk was broken and full with dust,... More

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor I was really looking forward to staying in this hotel. I was not disappointed. From check in to check out we had a fantastic time. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The bathroom huge and had a choice of bath or very powerful shower. Having a two night stay on Livingsocial we used... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here and loved it! The hotel has great interior and having the air con in the room was much appreciated. The thermal suite and massages were relaxing (the experiential showers in the thermal suite are a must). I was a bit disappointed that the beauty salon was booked out (probably because there were mid-week special... More

This was the only hotel of a month long trip that we left to book 3 x rooms while we were 'on the road'. a quick google search and phone call and it looked ok for a one night stay on our way from Galway to Slane. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of our rooms, the... More

While touring in Galway my wife and I stopped at the hotel for a meal. It was a really different menu from the others available in Galway. It had an international flavour and we really enjoyed the meal. The serving staff were friendly, well informed, professional and well trained. I would recommend to my friends the food and service and... More

In need of a light lunch, on a recent business trip to Loughrea, we stopped at the Loughrea Hotel. The lounge area was very large, and little had been done to alleviate the effect of this. We were directed to a seating area (not shown, but then, the place was quite busy) We both ordered soup and sandwiches. Service was... More

I had a one-night stay here with my 6 year-old. Check in was efficient and friendly. As I booked online, I was entitled to one hour's use of the spa. Because I didn't have a baby-sitter, the receptionist held on to the voucher so that I can use it another time. Very thoughtful. My room was, as requested, at the... More
